Vaccinium

A blueberry at a client’s house in HMB.

Beyond their amazing fruit, blueberry’s make wonderful landscape plants, potted or in the ground. This one shown has been in a large pot the whole year, and is very content. Watering and fertilizing are minimal and the exposure is part shade until 1, then sun the rest of the day. Blueberry’s thrive tolerate living under pine and euc trees, as the acidity is a natural fertilizer for them. Planted as a small hedge they make for gorgeous border plantings, far surpassing boxwood or viburnum tinus.
